January 24, 2012

Incoming Chairman Thomas Bozzuto Outlines Priorities

BOCA RATON, FL—The National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) elected Thomas S. Bozzuto, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Bozzuto Group, to serve a two-year term as the Council’s Chairman. The event took place at the NMHC Annual Meeting on January 18 in Boca Raton, FL.

Headquartered in the Washington, D.C. area, The Bozzuto Group is a diversified residential real estate company that provides a broad range of real estate services throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

As Chairman of the national association that is the leading voice for the apartment industry, Bozzuto will lead an NMHC agenda focusing on such priorities as advocating for a balanced housing policy – one which acknowledges the important role rental housing plays in meeting the needs of America's workforce – and enhancing access to affordable debt. In addition, he plans to continue successful initiatives to build connections among NMHC members and within the apartment industry.

“Through changing demographics and savvy consumer choices, we’re seeing a seismic shift in the demand for apartment living,” said Bozzuto. “My main priority over the next two years will focus on creating an environment on Capitol Hill and in the capital markets that will ensure we can meet the country’s need for millions of apartments over the next decade.”

NMHC also announced the appointment of the following officers for two-year terms:

Vice Chairman: Daryl J. Carter, Chief Executive Officer of Avanath Capital Partners, Irvine, CA
Treasurer: Bob DeWitt, Vice Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of GID Investment Advisers, LLC
Secretary: Sue Ansel, Chief Operating Officer, Gables Residential, Dallas, TX
